About Treatment Center

Situated in Anchorage, Alaska, Starting Point has treatment options for those who are seeking help for drug and alcohol addiction.

Addiction is a progressive disease of the mind that will continue to get worse with time if it goes untreated. It will continue to worsen without the help of a recovery program. It’s important that those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol seek the help of Starting Point in order to regain the life that has become lost to addiction.

Through a thorough patient evaluation, addicts who attend treatment at Starting Point can get a personalized treatment plan made. The assessment is intended to depict the severity of the addiction as well as to learn more about the individual themselves. This way, a comprehensive treatment program can be put in place in order to reap the desired result; that being long-lasting abstinence from drugs and alcohol.

Throughout the patient’s time in treatment at Starting Point, the addict will learn new vital coping mechanisms and trigger management skills. These will help the addict adapt to a new life that is free of substance abuse when they reenter society. Since many addicts relapse, it is inherently important that they avoid certain settings or social circles that will pressure them to use.

At Starting Point, we believe that all addicts have the courage within to overcome their drug and alcohol addiction. Through the constant support of counselors and professional advisors working with addict’s daily, recovery is possible. Despite how long one has been an addict for, recovery is still absolutely attainable. Treatment is not a one-size-fits-all approach and at Starting Point, treating each patient with individuality is of utmost importance.

Breaking the vicious cycle of addiction is tough, but with professional counselors and effective treatment options in place, sobriety is closer than it seems. Get in touch with Starting Point today at www.Stpt.Com to learn more about how recovery can help pave a new life path. When the final level of sustained sobriety is reached, a feeling of contentment will ensue and this is something to be extremely proud of.

Soo was great. She seriously spent three visits with me, and helped me figure out the best frames for me out of nine pair. Patient, professional and had a great sense of humor.

I had a great experience at Makar Eye care. I switched to them 2 year ago after a bad experience at another eye Dr in Anchorage. Makar has been awesome. Their staff is so nice and make you feel very comfortable. Their office is very comfortable and clean. I only waited maybe 5 minutes before being called back. The gentleman who did my pre-testing was so nice and polite. Last year I was treated by Dr. Makar herself and she was great. This year I was treated by Dr. Morey and she was amazing. She is very friendly and polite and made me feel so comfortable. She took the time to explain everything to me in terms that I could understand. She took lots of time with me and I felt like she really listened to me and genuinely cared about my eye health. I would highly recommend Makar Eyecare to everyone. You will have a great experience!

The support staff at Makar is always friendly and courteous, check-in and out I'd always quick and efficient. The professional staff is professional and efficient and they take the time necessary to perform a thorough pre-exam screening. I have direct experience with Dr. Tony for the past 10 years and every general exam is a positive experience as he takes all the time necessary to discuss history, concerns, eye health, and perform a detailed and thorough exam and refraction. I have only seen Dr. Rivera for eye health concerns, but she always demonstrates the same level of professionalism and thoroughness as Dr. Tony, so I would extrapolate that she and the other staff Optometrists demonstrate the same high level of care. If you are looking for a long term Optometrist relationship, this is the place for you.

They were pretty awesome. They had a cool TV in the front while you were waiting so you weren't super bored and the.. nurse? (the person before the doctor) was super nice and explained everything very clearly. The doctor was pretty nice and informative and seemed to genuinely want me to come back and help me with my consideration of surgery.

Makar Eyecare is a welcoming helpful place, and the expertise of the docs was apparent. They took me in while traveling and attended to my questions with detailed understandable information. My eyes will be healthier because of all of the advice and superb health care they provided on short notice. I am very grateful.

Great experience! Very well run business, and with knowledgeable staff. Loved my optometrist Dr Salvo! She was super friendly, smart, and professional. The exam was thorough, non invasive, and used high tech equipment. They also had specialists to help with fitting and selection for glasses, along with a good selection of styles.
